Surgery, Spinal Surgeries, any kind os surgery is something that we all need to look at, digest, talk it over with our families, etc.
The impacts of surgery go far beyond what it means to the patient. Just think about how much your loved one has to deal with when you go through surgery, recover from it, etc.
They put in so much additional work....
But, my subject here is the actual surgery!
Once you have been told that surgery is the only answer, the only remedy for your condition, how do you deal with it?
After 7+ spinal surgeries, 2 complete shoulder replacements and an upcoming hip replacement ( and so the other hip and knees to be replaced ), I think about surgery all the time.
At times, the thought about it depresses mean and I dwell on some of the negatives about surgery. Then there are so many times, when I welcome the surgery, because I know its going to eliminate my current pain and discomfort.
But, what is it that you think about before surgery and right up to the point when you have the surgery done?
